There were many statements in this book that really challenged my thinking which in its own way gets you out of your own box which can be a good thing.
It helped to stretch my mind by trying to figure out where the author was coming from and where he was headed.
However, all through the 280 plus pages, it was a struggle for me to read because for the life of me, I couldn't even understand how he came up with the title, especially the part about Hotel Mattresses. I don't recall 'Hotel Mattresses' even being mentioned until I read the Epilogue. The book was filled page after page of the author's ramblings, perspectives etc. throwing in occasionally something about quantum physics and if you''re not a physicist like me, I had a hard time relating to some of his comments especially when he said that time can go backwards. That one I had a hard time with.
In fact, I really didn''t understand the whole point of the book until I got past the 280 plus pages and read the Epilogue then his ramblings seemed to make sense.
To end on a good note though, I did agree with the points that he made about the Scripture that was referenced and his view about Our Creator.
In summary, read the Epilogue first then if you feel so inclined, delve into the book but make sure you have a beverage that you enjoy to go along with it.

When I received this book I read the introduction and I was not impressed. The title was a bit scary since I was never one for science. As I continued reading I was not even finish chapter 5 when I started to wonder when volume 2 will come out.
The author made a convincing statement that science (quantum physics) and The Bible are not at odds. They are saying the same thing. This book is not just about science but the inner workings of faith.
While reading at times you may be agitated because it will disturb your theology. This book causes you to think about what you believe.
Prayer, Quantum Physics and Hotel Mattresses will leave a mark causing you to never forget it. My book is yellow from highlighting. It was hard to pick a favourite chapter. I was very intrigue with the chapter on `The Incredible Spiritual Brain", where quantum physics was used to explain prophecy. The concept I took away from reading this book is, the unseen and the seen world are not two distinct worlds but one in the same. Also, the author made it clear that the universe declares The Lord's glory and therefore everything is holy. Everything you do in your daily life has glory in it.
In readying `Prayer, Quantum Physics and Hotel Mattresses' it leaves you in awe of the majestic, grandeur, and overwhelming goodness of God. This book makes you want to read and speak `The Word" more. Prayer, Quantum Physics and Hotel Mattresses makes The Bible come alive because you are seeing it from a new lens.
Your life will be transformed if you start to put these things into practice. The kingdom of darkness should be very afraid, if all Christians acquire this knowledge and apply it. Christians could actually bring heaven to earth if they get the concepts in this book.
Basically, Quantum Physics and The Spiritual World are connected.
The publisher has provided me with a complimentary e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review of this book
I certainly didn't agree with all of the positions that the author takes - and that's OK. It's kind of the point really. I believe for instance that milk chocolate is better, the author believes dark chocolate is better, but we both love chocolate. The areas of theological debate are similar, the areas the author challenges (both practically and theologically) never compromise on the core principals of the Christian faith and provide for that common ground. He simply posits some perspectives what I would call "fringe" areas of theological debate (the age of the earth for example) that Christians have been arguing over for centuries and no one this side of heaven really knows the answers to for sure. But the author's interesting and conversational style provides a safe place for individuals of all views to discuss and consider the author's perspectives - and allows the reader to agree or disagree.
The book clearly was a labor of love for the author and the author clearly has a heart for God. Throughout the book, the author is honest and heartfelt and supports his perspectives with copious amounts of scriptural and scientific references. And, while the book is not "light" reading, it is "enlightening" and is easy to read considering the subject matter can be pretty complex. The whole book is a conversation among friends and, just like a conversation, the book can wander a bit, go off on tangents, or repeat itself, but it never strays too far off topic and the informality of it all is in keeping with the whole purpose of the book which is, I believe, to provide some food for thought on the Christian faith from a more scientific viewpoint, ask the reader to really think, and allow for a conversation to flow so that we all may know God in a fuller capacity. In that, I believe the book succeeds admirably.

The author contends that science and faith are not at odds. On the contrary, he sees science as another way God reveals Himself to us. Science is not something to be ignored or wary of, but something to be used to better understand God, His ways, His miracles, His universe, and His desires for us.
This book is not for the close minded. It requires thought and encourages the reader to let go of religious dogma and open up to the complexity and majesty of God by learning all we can and embracing all He has for us.
This review is based on the free ebook that was given to me by the publisher.
But the author hit the spot. Yes, his writings help as he says to dissolving the barrier between the seen and the unseen.
What then is this book just about? It provides for us in a simple style answers to the worlds' questions concerning the subjects the power of faith and science verses faith.
Chapter 8 provides for us information on the rules by which we live and they are not to conform to the worldly lives of people, etc, comply with the rules of the Kingdom of God, and as we co-labors with God we are to have a spiritual vision.
A great book. Spiritually sound! Read and grow, and understand what you (we) did not know.
Don't allow the title to scare you.
